Went on the Dinner Train on the 4th of July. So it was pretty slow, not many passengers. But it was a great time. Food was good, service was good, and a nice relaxing ride out into the woods. Not a lot of great scenery in July. I bet this is awesome in the fall. Most of the trip is in the woods, and also runs along the Des Moines river.
Train doesn't move that fast, so it is easy to eat. A little pricey at $55 a person, but a nice thing to do for a special occasion.
